I was born and raised in Camden, New Jersey.
The opportunity to give the gift of sight. Cataract surgery in particular helps many patients see better than they have in years and sometimes allows them to see more than they ever have seen in their lifetime. That’s always thrilling for me and such an honor to perform.
I have been practicing ophthalmology for 25 years.
I enjoy playing classical piano pieces in my spare time and traveling around the world.
